  • 1.  Developmental Guide for Families

    Posted 09-30-2021 03:51 PM

    Does anyone have a recommendation for a guide that provides an overview of typical developmental characteristics across areas including: physical, social-emotional, and academic.  We have used the CDC Milestone printouts in the past and have also been told about Yardstick guides, but they don't begin until Kindergarten.  We are needing something for 2 - 5 years old.

    Thanks!

    Tiffany, 
    I recommend you check to find out if your state developed Early Learning Standards. Wisconsin's Standards (attached) are for birth to kindergarten and include all developmental areas. They are not age linked which is why there is a developmental continuum. Most state standards are age linked. 
    Wisconsin also developed a package of materials especially to help families understand child development. See the link below:
